Peanut butter and jelly, sweet and sour, milk and…vinegar? The best combinations sometimes don’t sound right. We might have to put a bit of blind faith in bigfatbig for this one, though. (Sidebar – milk and coke is a surprisingly legit duo.)

The North East all-girl trio’s new single doesn’t seem from its title to be especially tantalising, but thankfully its meaning is a delightful metaphor for those hardy friendships that spring from the unlikeliest of places. Unlikely combos stretch to bigfatbig’s sound too; you wouldn’t expect jangly pop vocals to go so well with punky riffs. I haven’t seen such fun, nonsensical but well-meaning pop rock since The Bangles; and the best thing about this track is that it is so undoubtedly fun. After months of doom and gloom, lockdowns and restrictions, it’s nice to see that bigfatbig have grabbed 2020 by the ‘nards and not let it distract them from what matters. Call your pals, have a nice sandwich and pop on some tunes until we can all get back out there together. In the meantime, I’ll be Googling weird recipes to see if there’s anything that might surprise me.

Milk And Vinegar by bigfatbig is out now
